how does garlic benefit you
How Does Garlic Benefit You?

“It was found that garlic boiled for 20 min has

the same bioactivity as raw garlic in its

antioxidant and protein spectra. Therefore it

should be added at this time to foods.”


“A clove of garlic is enough each day. You can

crush it in warm milk or just take one clove

alone.”(Larry Oz)

healthy middle eastern food
Healthy Middle Eastern food
  • Whole food, no supplyment.
  • Many recipes use only olive oil, and in very small quantities.
  • Very few dishes are fried, also. Many foods are grilled and baked.
  • The main point is how we deal with garlic in cuisines rather than how much we consume.
  • And most important of all, garlic consumption is not the core issue in Chinese hypertension.
  • I suggest that the most effective way to solve this problem is to change Chinese eating habit.
